Highest Point moves from three-day to two-day festival

The organiser of Highest Point festival has confirmed that the festival will take place over two days in 2024 and not three, unlike the 2023 event.
A “diary mishap” regarding one of the festival’s headliners has meant that one artist pulled out from appearing at the event.
The event, which takes place at Lancaster’s Williamson Park, will now take place on May 10 and 11, with the Big Family Day Out taking place on May 12.
A statement, published by Highest Point, read: “We know you are all eagerly awaiting lineup news, something which we are working very hard on in the background and hope to be able to have released imminently. However, booking a lineup is a long and complicated process, with many factors out of the event organiser’s hands.
“Highest Point had both our headliners confirmed back in autumn 2023. However, due to a monumental diary mishap with one of the artists, we unfortunately had to start again with the Friday lineup. As one of the areas only independent festivals, unfortunately the process can take longer for us than other festivals who have group booking power and budgets well above what Highest Point could partake in.”
The statement continued: “The more observant of you will notice that we are not hosting a Thursday event this year, a three-day festival is a huge undertaking and ultimately we do need to streamline to ensure many more years of Highest Point, an event that we absolutely love doing, but at times the journey has been a bit rough with plenty of challenges along the way.
Weekend and day ticket payment plans will be on sale at 6pm this evening and we are working our absolute hardest to get the lineup out this week. We need to get the payment plan tickets on sale before the lineup for technical and timing reasons, to ensure those wanting to spread payments out can get the best financial arrangement before the festival.”
